Dieter kicks off his camp tour
South Bend (Ind.) Washington wide receiver Gehrig Dieter ended the Spring Evaluation Period with seven offers, all from Mid-American Conference schools. Now that school is out, Dieter is hitting the summer camp circuit and his first two stops were at Big Ten schools.
"I've been to Purdue in Wisconsin," Dieter said. "I go to Northwestern next week and Indiana next week too. Then, in July, I go to Michigan State and Tennessee at the end of the month."
Dieter attended both the Wisconsin and Purdue camps this past weekend. He was in West Lafayette to camp with the Boilermakers on Saturday.
"That went pretty good and all the coaches were excited to see me," Dieter said. "They said to wait until the end of the month and they are going to go over things. They just want to evaluate me and at the end of the month they are going to offer players, so hopefully one of those will be me."
Following Purdue's camp, Dieter immediately hit the road so he could arrive in Madison for the Sunday session of Wisconsin's camp.
"I really destroyed everybody there, to be honest," Dieter said. "All the coaches really liked me and I liked the coaches there. They said I have good things ahead of me, so hopefully that will turn into an offer pretty soon. I'm almost positive that he said they want to wait until the next camp, then after that they will discuss everything and see what's going on."
Dieter added offers from Toledo and Akron during the last week of school to join previous offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan.
The 6-3, 210-pound Dieter finished his junior season with 63 receptions for 1,167 yards and 15 touchdowns for South Bend Washington.
